I don't get it at all. Where is the link that says "Continued on page C4?"


that's homeland security trolling for terrorists.

"I just went to Spain and the Travel section helped me plan my trip. The first thing I did was make this paper airplane. Awesome!"

How many sections are you fluent in?

The people in the current NYTimes TV commercials are much less annoying than the old bunch.

I've had horrendous experiences with the NYT home delivery over the years. I can't imagine how they stay in that part of the business.

In the Elysian Fields of her Hell people sit around and read the Weekender. Those damned to the 7th Circle are doomed to eternally read T Magazine.

Has the Times ever produced anything as cloyingly precious? T Magazine doesn't have a menu. Oh no, that would be too mundane. Instead we have captions like

The Words

The Images

The Goods

The Remix

The Videos

The Archive




The Fear, the Loathing.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I could be a hipster! Okay, I couldn't, but I could mock a hipster! That should be worth at least an extra week!
